NEW YORK - More than 500 workers along with elected officials will be marching to Governor Andrew Cuomo's office Friday to demand he pass a billionaire's tax.
Several dozen of those people spent the night sleeping outside of billionaire Jeff Bezos' home in Madison Square Park.
The group included some immigrant New Yorkers as well as elected officials.
They will march starting at 11 a.m. to urge Governor Cuomo to not only pass the tax on billionaires and also a worker bailout fund.
They say while millions of New Yorkers have lost their jobs, excluded workers haven't been included in federal aid.
During that time they say the city's 118 billionaires increased their net worth by $45 billion.
"It's time for billionaires like Jeff Bezos and leaders like Andrew Cuomo to step up and make sure that these excluded families aren't having to sleep on the sidewalk. They don't need a penthouse but they need something," said City Councilman Brad Lander.
"It's in my right because I pay my taxes every year from 14 years ago. It's necessary to help the workers and the many people that have money," said one march participant.
Some of the workers also fasted in protest on Thursday.
A number of those people then made their way to the demonstration outside Bezos' home and will also make their way up Fifth Avenue during Friday's march.
